Type 1 symptoms

If a person has type 1 diabetes, their pancreas cannot produce insulin. Insulin allows the body to process cabohydrates from food into energy.

Type 1 diabetes symptoms can include:

  • extreme thirst
  • constant hunger
  • sudden weight loss
  • frequent urination
  • blurred vision
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • extreme tiredness
  • infections

If you think you or someone you know has these symptoms, seek medical help immediately, and drink sugar-free fluids to prevent dehydration.


Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age. In type 1 diabetes, a person's pancreas produces little or no insulin. Insulin allows the body to process sugar to create energy, without insulin, the body literally starves as it cannot process food.

Type 1 diabetes symptoms can include:

  • extreme thirst
  • constant hunger
  • sudden weight loss
  • frequent urination
  • blurred vision
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • extreme tiredness
